It began as a solo project in 2003, with one person working a synthesizer, samples and literally anything else that sounded like a good idea at the time. Now, the band Loxsly is five members strong and takes its pop compositions into several different directions.
There is an abundance of highly-charged rhythm and contagious melodies on their album, Maps and Organs, accompanied perfectly by singer and band founder Cody Grounds unique vocals. The happy, shiny-sounding atmosphere created by much of their music is impressively combined with lyrics that are oftentimes darker and edgier. Its intelligent and danceable all at once.
Loxsly features guitarists Garrett Johnston and Justin Douglas, bassist Eryk Lugo, and drummer John Kelley.

- Release Notes ------------------------------------------------------------- -

Fresh off the heels of the Flashlights EP, Austin’s Loxsly emerge from the
lab with their third LP, Tomorrow’s Fossils (Little Mafia/Texas Heat, May
2009). This newest and perhaps most ambitious edition to the Loxsly
discography retains the band’s signature synth pop sensibilities while
revealing a darker layer. On one level it’s a concept album about science
gone wild, about conflicts between technology and humanity. But each song
stands strong on its own and takes on new meanings within the context of the
album, giving Tomorrow’s Fossils remarkable depth. With this latest LP,
Loxsly continues to showcase danceability, but this time out the lights are
dimmer, the club’s air denser, the faces more somber. That isn’t to say the
band takes themselves too seriously. (Recently on a live radio show for
Austin’s KUT they performed a lovely rendition of Kermit’s “Rainbow

Loxsly stands out as an Austin original, staying true to their pop roots but
back dropping songs with solid beats and swirling sound-scapes, most of which
are produced by a combination of vintage synths and organs and a pedal steel
filtered through who knows what. Out front they have a knack for melodies
that stick with you, driven by Cody Ground’s smooth vox, melodic bass lines,
and piercing guitar licks that cut through the curtain of sound. Their live
shows—often doused in whim—have been compared to smaller scale Flaming Lips
concerts. And their records are skillfully engineered, thematically and
sonically, drawing from fertile Beach Boys harmonies, massive M83 textures,
and playfully energetic, Deerhoof-like experiments.

Loxsly began in Waco, Texas, as 18-year-old Ground’s home recording project
(2003’s Forecast A Brainstorm). Since then, Ground, who sings and plays the
keys, has recruited high school friend Garrett Johnston on the guitar, Eryk
Lugo on the bass, Justin Douglas on that magic pedal steel, and David Nathan
on drums. Douglas records the band at his studio, Shine Studios, just east of
downtown in Austin.

Besides finishing Tomorrow’s Fossils, the band has been busy shooting videos
and playing shows in Texas and the surrounding states. They’re hitting the
eastern US mid-May in support of the album and plan to keep at it through the
